January on the Lower Sac has been pretty excellent, and I only imagine it will get better in the coming months. The flies of choice have ranged from the good old rubber legs to bird’s nests to micro may’s. The folks I’ve been taking out have been hooking fish and, when I get casts in, I’ve got some nice ‘bows too!
The crowds have been fairly low too, which has been nice. Generally seeing about six to eight boats total, which is a lot better than when you see forty, ha!
One of my favorite moments in the past month was when Corey hooked a nice 17inch fish in six inches of water! The fish took a brown rubber legs right on the nose! The fish then took off a bunch of line and, after a nice fight, we netted it and got a good picture.
